A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on acceptance, citizenship, dictatorship, exercise, government, kindness, life, opportunity, readiness, and thought

There is a kind of dictatorship that can come about through a creeping paralysis of thought, readiness to accept paternalistic measures by government, and along with those measures comes a surrender of our own responsibilities and therefore a surrender of our own thought over our own lives and our own right to exercise the vote. The free system gives the right to every citizen to do something for himself. Because he has the right, the opportunity is always there.

Dwight Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)
